Hypersonic aviation missile system "Dagger"



Unique researches of Russian scientists and the development of engineers have made it possible to create a unique hypersonic air missile complex "Dagger", which, according to independent experts, is one of the best and most powerful weapons in the world. In fact, Russia has become the first country to successfully test and start using hypersonic weapons, which in the US are still only dreaming, which in turn ensures the country's high defense capability and high military potential. What is the hypersonic air-missile complex "Dagger"?


What is a Dagger?



Due to the fact that the development of domestic scientists and engineers is unique and secret, the true information about the appointment and capabilities of the hypersonic airborne missile system "Dagger" is not disclosed, however, it is known that it includes a carrier aircraft and a hypersonic missile. The combat part of the rocket of the "Dagger" complex can be equipped with both conventional combat and nuclear weapons, which makes it possible to inflict enormous damage on the enemy. The maximum speed of the missile flight of the air-missile complex "Dagger" is about 12250 km / h, which means that the missile can cover a distance of 2000 kilometers in less than 10 minutes.

Given the hypersonic speed of the missile's flight, the Dagger air missile complex makes the air defense and missile defense systems useless, which already causes concern for the US Department of Defense, as this means that there is simply no defense against modern Russian weapons.

A no less important key feature of the hypersonic airborne missile system "Dagger" is that a missile with a combat unit can maneuver on any terrain, which makes its flight invisible.


Airplane carrier for "Dagger"



Taking into account the fact that the air-missile complex "Dagger" is a modern development, the Russian fighter-bomber Su-57 will most likely be used as the carrier aircraft. Official confirmation of this yet, but, given the fact that the aircraft has not yet begun to enter the arsenal of the Russian army, it is likely that this model is the best suited to the goals.


Skepticism and facts


Despite the fact that Vladimir Putin himself said about the completion of the tests and development of the hypersonic airborne missile system "Dagger", while noting that the complex itself is already on experimental-combat duty at the airfields of the Southern Military District, this statement has a lot of skeptics. Skepticism is primarily due to the fact that in the presented video materials, traces of erection were noticed, on which, a few moments before the explosion of the rocket, the substitution of the object on which the blow was struck was visible.



Of course, this can be explained by the fact that the developers, in view of the secrecy of the aircraft-missile complex, decided not to disclose its real capabilities, however, this is unlikely.

There is no less skepticism about the fact that earlier Russian scientists did not announce the development of hypersonic weapons, and the implementation of the project itself would probably have taken at least 5-6 years, not to mention the allocation of colossal financial resources.

Whatever it was, given the officially presented data, to date the hypersonic airborne missile system "Dagger" is an absolute weapon, and with a great deal of certainty it can be said that scientists will certainly continue to improve it.

Alguien sabe qué tipo de motor lleva?
Si, ya se que es hipersonico, pero me refiero a los detalles para poder alcanzar tanta velocidad: detonación, algún mezcla nueva, plasma, ect

Oh, sad sad sadness gentlemen ... who told you that Iskander only flies less than 500 km? There is a distance limiter in the form of a board and all ... we remove the limiter and the rocket flies all 2000 km. the second one of you knows the composition of the fuel rocket dagger or the searcher? chemists and physicists believe so that the fuel mass of 1 kg in the rocket can replace the 2-3 kg of old rocket fuel ... so you and the range of 2-3 times more. the third same physicists-chemists worked on explosives and if earlier 1 kg of explosive was equal to 100 kg of TNT, then now can equal 200-300 kg of TNT in the equivalent ... playing with the mass of fuel and mass of explosives and also with the configuration of warheads (OF, KM , KS) you get very high performance of the rocket without changing its mass. And if you reduce the mass of this or that part, you can also make less weight of the rocket ... Sometimes you go to industrial exhibitions and take a look at innovations in nanotechnology - when spraying for example a layer in 2-3 micron increases the cutting properties of the tool or a denser packing of molecules of fuel substance increases its energy efficiency .... I'm already silent about the change in chemical and physical properties ...

Everything that is commented on here, in a real military situation, will be different, or rather, not at all. You determine the aircraft carrier's vulnerability on the military march. During the war it seems to me that these boats will be sunk directly on the docks. And that's for sure. And the pentagon of the Pentagon in the first hour of the war must be excluded from the issues of destruction. Simply - it is necessary to start from the head, especially if it is stupid, and then red.

And why all the noise with hypersound? Is Iskander worse than a Dagger? First of all, there is NOT ANY EVIDENCE, ORDINARY THE ISKANDER CAN BE KILLED (THIS IS AT 5M AT THE ATMOSPHERE INLET). Secondly, all the bustle with the airfield with MIGs suspension of the Dagger-hour thing and more. And Iskander-immediately from the park DOLBANET and for 10 min-outside the radius of defeat 100 KT retaliatory strike .. And the cost and reliability? I think 20 to 1 in favor of Iskander. On the ships neither Dagger nor Iskander can not shoot.

if all such smart.to make your rocket. and for the comments we will not stand.

There is already talk about the Su 57 as the carrier of this "Dagger". Have you seen what dimensions this "Dagger" has, approximately, at least with the R-77 missile? Absolutely different sizes and weights !!! What are the internal compartments? It is possible to hang a couple of these under the "engine nacelles" of the Su 57, but there are some difficulties. "Dagger" is a massive thing, what is the distance from the Su 57 chassis to the "concrete"?

And then: The minimum speed for the start of the "Dagger" must be
3000 km / h for such a Su 57 is not designed in principle. The thermal barrier is not for "duralumin" and CFRP ...

The speed of the rocket is 12250 km / h (more than 3000 m / s) is practically similar to the A-135 rocket, but this assumes ground-based, mass up to 45 tons and a range of no more than 800 km. If the rocket is lighter, then the range will be about 350 km, as in the lightweight Cupids weighing 33 tons. And who can this be threatened?

if there is a hypersound on the su-57, naturally it will have a shorter range. But his (57-th) invisibility levels this lack of a rocket. In this way, it is possible to strike the same aircraft carrier connections of the enemy. In general, I think that the scope of this type of weapon is already indicated.

It would be so simple, the missiles would be in Zanzibar, not to mention NATO.

Yes you that! And what about the minimum of 500 km Iskander flying mass less than 4 tons? And the Dagger is in essence an aerial version of the Iskander aeroballistic missile.

And what kind of engine does it have, a missile or a single-shot HRV?

WFD, that's why the range is so, and the carrier of MiG 31BM and only it

Rave. This is an aviation version of the Iskander missile and the engine there is solid-fueled. Where did you see the air intake?)

For hypersound, the air intake (in the usual representation) may be absent.

as an option
starting mass from 5 to 10 tons
distance 2000 km overcomes 10 min, in the main space, posing a threat to satellites at altitudes up to 400 km
the target mass from 1 to 2 tons, angle degrees 60, speed 3 km / sec

This is an Iskander aeroballistic rocket, and it flies about 550-600 km (considering the launch not from the ground). The remaining 1500 km of range for the Kinzhal aircraft missile system is provided by the MiG-31. the total is about 2000 km.

Why should I give my fantasies for reality?
The article says not about the "amount", but about the fact that the Raketa overcomes 2000 km. And the speed of 12 thousand km / h refers to the ROCKET, and not the complex with the MIG-31. Accordingly, the design of the rocket should include this possibility - fuel and protection against thermal effects for 10 minutes.

The aircraft in the complex performs the role of the first stage of the racket, so the Su-57 will not carry this missile, the speed is not enough. Only MiG-31 or MiG-41 when / if it is completed.

Talks about the creation of hypersonic rockets have been going on for a long time. The first was successful tests Zircon and it was said that on the approach a hypersonic missile for aviation ...
